“Alginate dressings is the fastest-growing segment of wound dressings market”
Alginate dressings are biodegradable, reduce pain, and keep the tissues moist during healing. Alginate dressings help in the absorption of wound exudates and form a gel-like covering over the wound, which further aids in retention of moisture. The alginate has the capacity to absorb 20 times its weight in exudates and facilitates the process of autolytic debridement. These advantages of alginates over other dressings are expected to drive the growth of alginates segment at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
Alginate dressings are best suited for pressure and diabetic foot ulcers and venous leg ulcers, post-operative wounds, cavity wounds, traumatic wounds, malignant wounds, pilonidal sinus wounds, partial thickness burns, graft donor sites, and abrasions. They are also used to control minor bleeding. New products in alignates segment are being developed by several companies. Key players in the alignates market include Smith & Nephew plc (U.K.), 3M Company (U.S.), Hollister, Inc. (U.S.), and Mölnlycke Health Care AB (Sweden).
